PRRD Requests Data Gathered by Ministry Regarding Old Fort Area

The Peace River Regional District Board reviewed the letter sent by Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General on July 26, 2019 in response to a previous letter sent by MLA Dan Davies, on June 25, 2019, expressing his concerns regarding the Old Fort Landslide area.

The Minister’s letter suggests the area is unlikely to experience “a dramatic slippage of the remaining hillside that might further impact homes to occur. The data suggests that if movement was to recommence, it would be a slow-moving slide as had been experienced in the previous slide that initiated on September 30, 2018.”  The Regional Board is requesting from the Ministry the data that substantiates this statement.

Once the data is received, the Peace River Regional District plans to have the data verified by applicable experts to consider whether evacuation alerts and orders may be removed from the Old Fort area.
